Petition: Increase Funding for Australian Native Wildlife Rehabilitation

Petition: Increase Funding for Australian Native Wildlife Rehabilitation

Increase funding to wildlife hospitals and provide funding for veterinary surgeries, rescue organisations and carers who rehabilitate Australian Native Wildlife.

Why is this important?

Koalas are now functionally extinct. We have wildlife hospitals over capacity and surviving almost entirely on donations, rescue organisations and carers trying to save animals often in their homes at their own expense. People from all over the world donating and stepping in to help. Yet our government pays next to nothing to support our wildlife hospitals and stand up to their responsibility. Too little too late for Queenslands fauna emblem and one of Australia's most recognisable native animals. What's going to be next?
